Police asking the public for help regarding CMU hit and run


Police are asking for the public’s help in their investigation into a fatal hit and run this past weekend near Central Michigan University.

Investigators say a group of CMU students were walking on the side of Crawford Road near the south end of CMU’s campus. Friends say they were walking back to the dorms.

Freshmen, Ryan Tsatos was struck by a vehicle. Police say he died on the scene.

The vehicle is described as a dark-colored four door sedan with passenger side damage.

Sergeant Kim Vetter is with the Michigan State Police.

“We are looking for information about the driver in the vehicle that was involved in the crash, and encourage anybody who has information to call the post at 989-773-5951.”

Published reports say Tsatos’s brother died this past July in a car crash near the family’s hometown in Macomb Township.
